Faneuil Hall Marketplace announced that it will be launching a new Holiday Blink! Show that will light up the Marketplace for five weeks beginning on November 29, 2017 and a new series of weekly events called “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” for charity. Faneuil Hall is continuing the annual tradition of having the largest tree in the northeast, with an 85-foot fir tree adorned with decorations, sparkling lights and synchronized to music to provide entertainment for visitors who want an authentic New England holiday experience.
A special preview of the all new Holiday Blink! show will be on Tuesday, November 28th at 7:30 p.m. for a live broadcast. The preview show will be hosted by WBZ-TV news anchors Lisa Hughes and David Wade, featuring holiday entertainment and the New England Patriots Holiday Toy Drive.
This year Blink! has been redesigned to feature more lights throughout the Marketplace that can morph into all colors of the spectrum and a variety of holiday songs that will be piped throughout the property with animation. Every day from November 29th to January 1st the tree will light up at 4:30 p.m. and every half hour will transform the Marketplace into a glittering spectacle of light and sound until 10 p.m. In addition, the new Holiday Blink! show will feature holiday tunes for sing-a-longs, dancing and outdoor entertainment both during the day and at night. The new “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” events for charity will be held on four Saturdays in December in partnership with CBS Radio in Boston and local charitable organizations.
